Southern Grilled Barbecued Ribs

Reviewed: May 19, 2015
I was skeptical of this recipe because it didn't require much pre-marinating and the cook time was much shorter than I expected. I made it exactly according to the directions and the meat just didn't get tender. Ribs meat should almost fall off the bone. The vinegar marinade wasn't enough to cover the ribs (I did baste them halfway as instructed.) I have them back in the oven to see if I can salvage them. The rib meat was from a farm CSA so it was really good quality meat and I was sad to have them not turn out well.

Low Carb Cauliflower Leek Soup

Reviewed: May 1, 2015
Very good. I added three stalks of sauteed celery and used chicken broth instead of vegetable broth. Tasted good even before the cream and I haven't added any seasonings yet. I'm not a huge cauliflower fan but I had some leeks I needed to do something with from my Farm CSA, and this was great! Since it's blended, I might even be able to get my three year old to try it!

Janet's Rich Banana Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2014
I make this all the time. I usually substitute half whole wheat pastry flour and half white whole wheat flour and it turns out great. I also add pecans. Very good, moist recipe. I don't melt the butter (I soften it) and I definitely mash the bananas up to make them sweeter rather than use cut banana chunks. Great recipe b/c of the sour cream!

Maple Walnut Pumpkin Pie

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2014
The filling batter tasted better than the pie when it was cooked, but it was still pretty good. I would probably play around with the recipe if I were to make it again. I made a graham cracker crust that had only butter and graham crackers for ingredients and would choose one that included sugar next time as I didn't find the pie to be quite sweet enough. It was good but could be improved upon with homemade whipped cream.

Graham Cracker Crust II

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2014
I'm not sure why this gets such rave reviews. The directions are completely confusing (what is a "square" of a graham cracker? To me there are 4 little rectangles per one large rectangle, with half being the only square.) I started off with 1/4 cup butter and 4 large crackers, increased it to 8 crackers when it was obvious that 4 wasn't nearly enough for a 9" pie crust, and eventually settled on 6 TBSP of butter to 12 large crackers. It worked, and it stuck together after baking it better than I would have guessed, but it didn't taste that great. I would not make this crust again. I would go for a recipe that calls for sugar. I made this with the Maple Walnut Pumpkin Pie and it wasn't very good (but the pie itself was pretty good.)

Curry Pumpkin Soup

Reviewed: Apr. 1, 2012
I made this with coconut milk (boxed, not canned) and wouldn't do that again. Will try again as written next time. Quite good still but not as creamy the way I made it.

White Chili with Ground Turkey

Reviewed: Apr. 1, 2012
Very good flavor. Was a little too soupy. I will just add 4 cups (1 box) of broth next time. Otherwise loved it! Doesn't look as good as it tastes.

Bean and Honey Burrito Casserole

Reviewed: Apr. 1, 2012
I used healthier tortillas (flax, etc.) but it was still quite good. I like all the beans in the recipe. Healthy and tasty. Great mustard/honey sauce! Will make again!

Spicy Sausage and Rice Casserole

Reviewed: Apr. 1, 2012
Very good flavor. Good with modifications written by first reviewer. Will definitely cook on stove-top next time, halve the amount of sausage to reduce the fat, not add extra salt, and try to fit in extra veggies. I will probably use sweet sausage instead of spicy but it wasn't too bad spice wise. My husband loved it. I might add twice as much rice and broth next time b/c it was very meaty.

Chef John's Banana Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2012
It was definitely interesting and different with the chocolate chips but not necessarily better than a regular banana bread recipe. I didn't think it was quite moist enough. I think I will try adding chocolate chips to a recipe that calls for buttermilk or sour cream rather than make this recipe as-is again. I think my regular recipe that calls for banana extract is better.

Baked Potato

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2012
Way too long in oven. Cook in microwave first and then finish in oven? Or use aluminum foil to finish cooking when it's hot.

Fiesta Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2012
Pretty good but quick cook rice got mushy. Very bland as well. Try adding the chicken stock flavoring packet things from Trader Joe's? 3 pounds of chicken was WAY too much. Use 1 pound next time.

Pasta Bake

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2012
Very good with ground beef. Dave loved it. Seems like the sauce gets watery in the oven and you need to add more. Try adding Parmesan cheese as well as Mozzarella.

Grandma's Apple Crisp

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2012
A little too sweet as I wrote it. Reduce sugar. Walnuts on top were awesome! Use 1 cup or more even.

Spaghetti Carbonara II

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2012
Pretty good but not good enough to justify the calories for me. Tried it with whole wheat spaghetti and tried baking the bacon, which didn't turn out so well. Used the non-nitrate stuff and it wasn't that good.
